Pumpkins—It’s time for their 15 days of fame

by Jay Reesor

Yep…it’s that time of year again. Pumpkin season! It is always fun in late August to go out to the pumpkin field and check under the leaves to see what is developing there. This year we were very pleased to see nice, large, well-shaped pumpkins.

And now it’s time for those pumpkins to head to the market for sale. They will end up on peoples’ doorsteps, some in pie, and perhaps some on desktops.

When I was a kid back on the farm, we always used to grow some pumpkins in our garden for carving up for Halloween.  They were pretty, but not nearly as attractive and robust as the varieties we grow now.  That is what good plant breeding will do for a vegetable and pumpkins are no exception. So many crops have benefited from good plant breeding to make them tastier, more disease resistant or more adapted to various climates. Something to be thankful for!

A pumpkin in many respects is associated with bounty and Thanksgiving. I hope that all of our readers have a meaningful and happy Thanksgiving.

Our giant scarecrow is waiting….
to have his picture taken with you

We welcome you to bring your family and friends to pick pumpkins in our pumpkin patch, take photos with our giant scarecrow and find your way through our corn maze.  They are all located just north of the farm market and are open during Market hours. 

You have lots of ways to choose pumpkins at Reesor Farm Market.

Don’t forget the cranberries for your Thanksgiving dinner!

Our cooks have been busy stirring up batches of our Ruby Red Cranberry Sauce with its simple, but delicious orange and cinnamon flavours. Our cranberry sauce tastes great with our chicken and beef pies and of course turkey.

Ruby Red Cranberry Sauce is available at Reesor Farm Market and at Reesor’s Market & Bakery.
